Ask the Captain a Question!
Do you have questions for the Captain? We have answers! Submit your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether you’re curious about the innerworkings of a boat or have any other sailing-related inquiries, we’ll provide you with answers straight from one of our captains. Each month, we will pick 5 winners and publish those questions (with the answers) on our next newsletter and on our website! The winners will receive two free tickets for a scenic cruise with Diamond Jack’s River Tours!
Where’s the Windsor Hum Coming From?
This year, be sure to listen for the mysterious Windsor Hum as you sail with us! Our Canadian neighbors across the Detroit River have reported hearing a strange rumbling sound that scientists have not been able to explain. The noise experienced by Windsor residents has been unpredictable, each instance differing in timing, duration and intensity. Watch a video featured on The New York Times of one resident’s experience. A professor at the University of Windsor has described trying to find an answer to the Windsor Hum “like chasing a ghost”. Our sightseeing tours will cruise right into the inexplicable Windsor Hum. Will you hear it? Join us this upcoming season starting June 7th to listen for yourself!
Lots to See (and Hear) on Our Sightseeing Tours
